Before reserving:

  • Most of these events are offered at no cost to you; except those which are specified as otherwise.
  • Please do review "Target Audience", if applicable, before reserving a seat.
  • For events held at SR center:
    • all current Storming Robots students and parents will have priority to attend.
    • Seats are very limited. A great deal of resources, time and energy have been invested to make each event available. If you have reserved a seat but will not be able to attend, please do notify us with at least one day prior to the presenation. This will allow us to release seat to others in waiting list.
    • Please do note that "no show" will result in being put in waiting list for future event; and you will be confirmed availability with a few hours before the event.


Compact bot with Customizable PCB and STM32 Software" Presented by: Ethan Wu

September 17th/ Sunday. At Storming Robots. | 6 to 6:15 pm.

Showcase a custom designed PCB with STM32 software on ARM microprocessor, onboard motor controllers. It, along with Maze w/ OpenCV algorithm, was awarded the "Best Rescue Engineering Strategy" at the World Competition held in Nagoya, Japan in July 2017. Fun topic for Embedded System enthusiasts.

Predicting Lung Cancer Onset Using Segmentation and Classification - Presented by: Neelay Trivedi

September 17th/ Sunday. At Storming Robots. | 6:30 to 6:45pm.

He used an EC2 to build a machine learning pipleline in Python that predict whether lung CT scans cancer or not. He will talk about Tensorflow and Keras, and how this work can be extended to revolutionize disease diagnosis.

Tech Talk about Maze Search Algorithm!

Date: 2016 | December 11th |10:00 to 10:45 am.

By : Jeffrey Cheng, Julian Lee and Stepan Gorelenkov ( all in Grade 8)

Target audience: Programming experience and algebra I. Interested in Software Algorithms.

Software/ Hardware : RobotC by CMU Robotics Academy + C++ and Mindstorms + various 3rd party devices The team have created a maze-navigating robot to simulate a rescue mission. It will identify victims with thermal sensor and dispense rescue kits along optimal paths calculated by their search algorithm (unweighted Dijkstra Algorithm). This project utilized 9 sensing devices including mostly I2C– based 3rd party sensors. Team also has designed and 3D printed their components to house sensors as well as tackling intense challenge.

Tech Talk about A Chess Prototype Algorithm - MinMax!

Date: 2016 | December 4th |10:00 to 10:45 am.

By : Alexandar Lisenko

Target audience: Programming experience and algebra I.

Alex will demonstrate his customed built LEGO Tic-Tac-Toe Machine. This is no normal machine. The software written for this machine is different from typical ad-hoc/brute-force method. It is programmed with the Minmax Algorithm which will never lose a game.. Minmax is a prototype algorithm used by most 2-players game, such as Chess.
